my tears fell when
a life has come to an end
it rained my summer
and flooded the hill where i stand
the river soaked its bank
and the whimpering found its way downstream
settling my distressed and heaviness of heart
hiding the fervor being doused like a dream
a breaking heart was difficult to keep
a place of rest was never in mind
 to let the grief find its righteous end
to be in high spirits once again…
